Diatomaceous Earth 500g



1 x Diatomaceous Earth 500g
2 x Plastic Bags for transport
1 x Instructions


Diatomaceous Earth 500g is a small quantity of a naturally occurring sedimentary rock formed from microscopic fossilized diatoms over millions of years.  It is commonly used in the cosmetic industry but is a great garden supplement for bug control in the garden, lice control in your chicken pen and ant and termite control in your house.  There are two forms of Diatomaceous Earth though only one form is available in Australia.

This product is 2mm to 6mm and slightly course.
Super fine can be orders via a custom quote but it is quite expensive.
The course grade can be made finer by putting it in a zip lock bag and roll over the bag with a rolling pin till you reach a desired size.  However this will still not be as fine as the commercially processed fine powder.   It is still good enough to use on your garden for pest control and plant growth or storing seeds as it retains moisture keeping your seeds dry and pest free the organic way.

500g or more can be added to any order of Compots
4kg can be posted anytime or added to an order of Compots (bucket)
8kgs can be posted anytime or added to an order of Compots (box)

The current size I stock is a course grade that can be crushed to a finer grade by putting it in a plastic bag and rolling over it with a rolling pin. It won’t get to a super fine grade but is good enough for bug control or seed saving.

If ordering Compots it is cheaper to add 400grams of product to your order rather than buying it separately as the weight does not change the postage rate of your parcel.

It is also cheaper postage wise to purchase a bucket or box of Garden Supplements with your order of Compots rather than 500grams only

You can purchase several garden supplements to try the products before you buy large quantities.
If you find the postage excessive it may not be calculating properly so fill out a custom quote form instead
You might want to use this option to try several different products before buying larger quantities.
Also fill in a custom quote form if you require a certain size so I can see if I can obtain it for you.

1 x Diatomaceous Earth 500g
2 x Plastic Bags for transport
Total Weight: 600grams
Box: 22cm x 17cm x 10cm

500 grams of Diatomaceous Earth can be added to any order of Compots without altering the postage costs.
This is a nice amount to test for bug control in the garden or if storing seeds.
4kgs Bucket can be added to any order of Compots or ordered separately
8kg Box can be added to any order of Compots or ordered separately

Ordering more than 300grams is probably not cost effective unless you order a bucket or a box of Diatomaceous Earth.  A whole box is a very large quantity and more suited for large gardens or community gardens.


The updated website and shopping cart should automatically calculate any variations of products you add to your order and offer you the three cheapest options (one with signature required) so you can choose which option you prefer.  However we can only post buckets and boxes by courier as I currently find them too difficult to take to the post office to post with Australia Post.

If for any reason you feel the postage to your area is excessive (and sometimes it is too remote areas) please email us  so we can work something out for you.  The updated website will now give you Australia Post and courier costs, but this still may be excessive.   So, contact us to see how we can help.

Please call us (0467 006 529 / (07) 3358 3716) for a correct quote or continue to payment options.  We will refund you any postage charges over and above what the real cost is when we calculate and book your order.

If you get no satisfaction with the post, then please call us or email us and see if we can’t help you get a better deal.
